330ml brown bottle. Poured with a generous tan head, somewhat frothy, some sticky lace. Reddish brown colour, some haze. Cookie-ish malts aroma, almonds (?), fruity with a mild spice note, sort of like mild banana bread. Amazingly soft palate, very mild carbonation. Body is full, slightly oily. Malty flavour, some sweetness in the middle leads to a dryish finish with some yeast and a slight tease of hops.
0.33 l bottle from Koht Õllepood, Tallinn, Estonia. Appearance is brown, cloudy and with a huge white head. Aroma has dark chocolate. Taste is sweet and dry with chocolate flavour. Well, this is the closest you can get to Westvleteren 6 since it is not being brewed any more. tlyx (102) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2017
Gräsig arom med en aning svart te. Metall, gräs med jordig avslutning. Ganska vattnig och intetsägande. tgrtnr (186) - Augsburg, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2017
330 ml bottle served in abbey glass. Dark brown with big creamy head. Raisins, rum, dried fruits, caramel, dark chocolate. Malty, sweet, metallic, slightly bitter. Nice alcoholic warmth. Medium body, soft carbonated. Nice Dubbel. wilde_joost59 (95) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2017
Uit fles. Prachtig schuim, mooi donker van kleur. Veel aroma. Meer een bier voor herfst of winter dat wel, maar vol van smaak. ha1ag (904) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017
Bottled. A light version of the 8. Color is dark hazy brown with huge off-white head. Spicey nose. Aroma is dark fruit, sweet caramel. Flavour is same, no alcoholic stings of the 8. OK.

Classic lighter dubbel- caramel nutmeg rich malts, candi sugar, and a touch of banana Belgian yeast. Definitely a nice Belgian drinker. Keukeman (146) - BEST, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017
.33l bottle at home. Hazy brown beer, shallow aromas, hints of brown sugar and caramel. Taste is rather sweet. Strong malt flavour. Palate is thick, medium carbonation. Flaky yeast is present in the bottle, I poured some yeast along with the beer.. hehe.
Overall not too bad. Not that special of a beer. basjansen14 (388) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2017

Pretty much a lighter version of Prior 8. Hazy brown color with medium head. Aroma: dark fruits, candy sugar, nutmeg and barley. Taste: Plums, dates, raisins, toffee, Belgian yeast and spice. growler6 (170) - BELARUS - JUN 3, 2017
Dark semi-sweet chocolate, with banana, pear and doughy aromas. Not as much depth of flavor or aroma as I was expecting. Light and fizzy as it should be with a slightly salty aftertaste. Ok but just an average dubbel. Their Prior 8 is much better .
